To tbe seusitive man, who waa nearly maddened by this revelation of the way he had been regarded br those who thus boaated of the way they had used lilro, another and on overwhelming losnlt waa offered. When th McUraw estate was examined It waa found that the new 1900,000 residence, which tho btldo never lived to occupy, and which was fun of rich bno-a-brac, rare paihtlnn and statu ary, belonged to tbe university. Wnat shall we do with It t " asked the tumultuous trustee. On Inquiry It was estimated tbat It would not bring more than aso.ooo at auction, and Prof. Fisko begged tbat It be not so sacrificed. Why not keep It, as a mark of respect to the douort it waa an education In lUeif. It would turnian an Invaluable ally to vartoua departments of tbe university, snob, for example, aa architecture, decorative art, Ac, President White leoonded the mo tion and offered, with ohsracterlatto gener osity, to present tho college with some ot bis valuablo collections If they might hare ao beau, tirul a depository. Prof. Flake made a similar offer, and It was believed tbat tho ra.nalon would frovo an alluring bait to private collectors al) over bo country, aud would attract many rich prize to tno University which otherwise wonld go else where. This scheme waa so original, so bold and, above all, so " Impractical " that the tnmultnoua trustees raised their hands In holy horror. What! sacrifice sao, 090 of hard cash (money which would do so much good to the University) for a mere sbow-bousel The Idea wsa preposterous. No: tho McOraw mansion and the private effects or tint great benefactress must be told al auction!"

The developments of the Flske suit have given rise to mueb acrimonious debate concerning the manucr In whton tbe Itnaoa trustees, wbo have alwaya Insisted on holding the managerial relua, have attended to tho Interests of th University, The Dent between these trustees and tbe alumni of tbo college, lu which the former resented a un warrantable tbe deatra of the graduates to have a finger in the pie ot progress, Is sun fresh in the mind ol newspaper resders. Tbe suit has Drought out some st. riling iscta, which go to show that the local 'trustees, however zealous, were not omnl solent to say the least, and that they neglected aN tending to very pressing dalles or Prof. Flak would never have had the splendid loopholofor sttack which hla lawyer discovered for him. Two law are in discussion In tnis sulti one of them besrlsg upon tbo right of a wife to give a half only ot her fortune to charitable laailtullnna is not particularly important, aa it canonly effect the case to the extent of a very email portion ot tbe amount involved. Tbe other law lathe ono on wmen the ault turns, it la a part ot the charier ot the University and reads aa follows t , 'Section 6, chapter 683, ot tho Law of 1868: tb corporation hereby created may bold real and personal property to an" amount not exceeding is, ooo. 009 In tho agggrejjrste. v on this provision mainly the husband ot Jennie sicQraw bases his attempt to break her wllL As a matter offset It was In the power or tno Trustees to hsvo thia provision altered to salt the advancing wealth ot tho corporation, and why they neglected to do so is a problem which people ara considering la-wender and-nmaxsment,. In 1680 It was well known thaVtbe Cntyeretty owned property: worth more than $3,000,000.. At .the time ot tbo annual, meeting of the Board ot Trustee In June, USl.the treasurers i testimony, lately given shows last they had property worth over f2, 000, ooo, besides 337,000 acres ot, land, outot a lot which had been selling at $7 an aero, and whloh they Were then holding for higher prices. Indeed, they had then been offered, by a New York syndicate, the May previous, sa tbe treasurer teatlbes, a million and a quarter for a part ot tnis land, and before Nor. l or tbat year (before the death ot Mrs. Flake, cut after Judge Boardman bad drawn np her will) tbey badaoldaomoai.OOOa rea for over 1475,000, and before Nov. 1 of tbe following year taey had sold a part of the remainder for about two million dollars, but they still hsd a Urge and valuable tract ot land. Tho Leglalaiuro waa In session in June, 1881, and tbe trustees look advantage of It to secure somo petty legisla tion (intended to give tbe active trustees an ad vantage over tho kicking Alumni), bnt neglected to obtain the Important legtslstlon needed to so core tho University against such litigation as that watch la now sprung upon it. Thors waa no reason whatever why tho charter should not be amended. The Lelslsture would have done it at the asking, snd Gov. Cornell, nlmselt a trustee, would have signed the bill without a question, But through somebody's neglect the staul door was left open unill tbe norse was atoiett In 1882, when It wss too lste to remedy tbat delect so fsr ss tbe McOraw legacy was concerned, a bill was put through the Legislature and signed by tho Gov ernor, authorising Cornell University to hold any amount or money.
